Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Nonsensical

Worst movie I've ever seen. Nothing about birth no reincarnation. Really, doesn't worth your time

AWFUL!

This movie is awful on all levels. Even for someone who is intrigued by past lives. Nothing about when this child realizes that he's her husband, they portray him more as an adult than a child who realized he had a past life. Very cocky. Aside from the bad storyline, there are so many pregnant pauses in this movie, that if you removed them all, you'd have a half hour story. Okay, and let's not forget the creepy yuck factor of this woman actually contemplating sex with a ten year old. YUCK! BTW: Someone said the sex scene was not too bad. Really? if you think it wasn't so bad, why are you even on this site? Most parents concerned with what their kids are viewing would not want them to see such a scene. Not to mention the quasi - pedophile relationship between the two.

This title has:

Too much sex
